    We needed Eliot Ness and Rudy Giuliani. Instead we got Frances Fitzgerald and Aodhain O'Riordain.

    After 6 years of FG running Law & Order, the administration of justice in Ireland has never been in a worse state than it is today.

    Have to agree with that. Although the problems within the guards is of far longer standing than six years. Lots of people now of voting age are too young to remember Lenihan Snr telling the story on TV about Haughey asking the young guard how he'd like a transfer to the Aran Islands if he applied the law to him.

    The ultimate sham marriage has to be being a male, pretending to have the EU passport, agreeing to a sham marriage in exchange for a few weeks of riding, and then disappearing.

    This state knew it had a problem with Sham Marriages almost a decade ago. These are not difficult problems to solve. So it deeply disappointing, not to mention shameful that in 2018, we read this:

    Probe into Irish-based marriage scam being used to obtain EU residency for illegal immigrants - Irish Independent

    "Gardai are spearheading a Europe-wide investigation after uncovering an Irish-based international bogus marriage scheme being used to obtain EU residency for illegal immigrants, including sex offenders and suspected Isil supporters."

    It bears repeating: This country is just not serious about protecting the integrity of its borders.

    What a sad indictment of our ability to run a country.
